Happily, I think this is even better. Its much leaner, undeveloped & crystalline in a delicate and grapefruity style. On the nose it presents as quite Chardonnay driven with spicy & somewhat aldehydic characters & developed yeasty overtones. Its not until the palate that the firmness of Pinot Noir is felt, but in a quite restrained fashion – it still feels quite primary, even though its at the 10 yr mark. The acid is soft which suggests that this won’t be the longest lived wine, but it still tastes admirably youthful.
